Be an EGU Early Career Rep!

Early career scientist representatives are a crucial link between the EGU and the early career scientist community. They are vital in providing feedback from students and early career researchers, so that we can take action to improve our early career scientists activities at the EGU General Assembly and maintain our support for early career scientists throughout the year.
As well as giving you the platform to interact with a large network of researchers in your field, being an early career scientists representative is a great opportunity to build on your communications skills, boost your CV and influence the activities of Europe’s largest geoscientific association.
Within each scientific division, representatives can also take on a variety of tasks, according to their areas of expertise and interest. These can include (but aren’t limited to): organising events for early career scientists at our annual General Assembly, outreach to early career scientists and the wider public through social media or a division blog, or establishing a mentoring programme for other early career scientists.
Interested? The divisions currently looking for an early career scientists representative are:
  • Atmospheric Sciences (AS)
  • Biogeosciences (BG)
  • Earth and Space Science Informatics (ESSI)
  • Energy, Resources and the Environment (ERE)
  • Ocean Sciences (OS)
  • Planetary and Solar System Sciences (PS)
